Scrapping the day away . . .

In order to alleviate the guilt for not working, I scrapped older photos of Jamie that I need to finish for his album for graduation (yes, these photos go back up to 18 YEARS!!). I'm trying to do my journaling as I imagine him looking at these with his children and grandchildren, and want them to know the story about Jamie and his younger life.

My biggest problem is dating the photos! Uh, if I don't know . . . then how will anyone know if it's incorrect (grin). But I did get NINE pages done.
I know he doesn't read my blog, but I did hesitate for a moment to even post these because of the (gulp) BAD HAIR DECADE!!

Songbird Avenue Scraplift Challenge

Never heard of a scraplift challenge? You find a layout you like - then use it as a base for your own design. Kept the main concept the same, but personalize it . . . change the papers, embellishments, photos and title to suit your photograph!

Songbird Avenue, who I've posted about before here, is hosting a scraplift challenge. I found Shabby Miss Jen's Our Snow Hats layout over at DigiShopTalk's gallery and used a photograph of Bradley's friend Brianna and the Songbird Avenue's kit of the month to create a similar page.
